Yaskell of Southport, is still in Germany despite the fact that he's been with the armed forces since the invasion of Africa. The reason for this is that Pete is one of the topnotch photographers of the war and his services cannot be so easily duplicated by another with less experience. Before the war Pete was an avid photographer and when the war came along it was only natural that he continue in this work, using his talent for the Army. Landing with the forces in the invasion of. Africa, Pete has been with them through many; campaigns, in Africa, Sicily, and in Italy. His aeikl photographic missions have taken him over Yugoslavia, Norway, Germany,] and other countries. The success of his missions have won for him) recognition in various forms, among them the Bronze Star. | Perhaps Pete's most interesting assignment from a non-tech-j nical stand point was a recent one. He was sent to cover pictorially the Congressional investigation party of which Congresswoman Clare Booth Luce was a member. When Mrs. Luce returned to the States she wrote Pete's relatives here that she had enjoyed being with Fete and she also sent some souvenirs which Pete had asked her to bring over.
